Blog To The World; Blog For You And Me

I am not sure where to start though; I wish I could deliver well my passion to blogging through this writing competition. I heard blogging stuff from the very first friend I have met online, it was Anne from My Virtual Journal who introduced me to blogging but at that time yet, since I was hooked up with my being a call center agent, I was not that so attentive when she told me that she earned enough from blogging. Hence, I started to browse about it and and followed Anne’s footprints and life in America together with her husband and read all the things she has been busy with, her passion to build a perfect family and her endeavor in day to day life. Until I thought to start with having my own journal here in blogosphere and that was after I deliver Faith during my maternity leave.

I actually wrote a post for Anne entitled Who Introduced You To Blogging sometimes last year, I never saw her or talked to her in person but this girl never ceased to make friends with everyone and I am one lucky person indeed to have met a friend like her.

My journal contains my rantings, ventures and my two kids, it was only a simple journal where I could bent all the things in my mind, I had no plans yet to monetize it since I was still busy with other things here at home, plus my eagerness to go back in the call floor to work was in my mind yet. It was then my first night at work when I almost cried right after I step out from our doorsteps, I already miss my little Faith and while the days run into weeks, I seemed like I have to drag myself to go out and have to deafen my ear so not to hear Faith’s cry until I give up I decided to stop working and try to earn a little something from blogging.

My first template was a two column lay out and with the courtesy of Kirsti of The Realms of CampJK she taught me how to edit to make it a three column lay out, it was so amazing because I was able to learn from it overnight, then Mommy Gen of Wonderful Things in Life offer me a nice header with me and Terry’s picture. Then there was a scroll bar for labels and bloglist from Mabel and the rest was history.

From the first three months of not working was not that easy as I wanted to earn and pay my dues from my own pocket but with the blogging I was able to pay some of my bills from it. Though Terry contributed the most with our expenses here at home, I just feel so delighted that even though I don’t have work at all, I still able to contribute even a little.

My friends from the call floor Selina and Grace were one of those friends, I was able to convinced to try blogging and earn a little and just recently were my best pal Jessienie and Clarinda. I have never meet in person to those friends I meet here in blogging well except the four friends I mention above. But even so I always thankful that I belong with this sphere because I was not only enjoying myself to write but I also enjoy those treasured friends I met here.

I bet most of you, knows already that Lainy’s Musings is having a blogversary writing competition and for that I am inviting you all to join in this unique and amazing kind of contest. Just visit her page for the mechanics.

Sink, Review and Tuition Fee

Last week, we woke up with so much water in the kitchen; it was all spread to the floor. I thought the water was from the leak in the rooftop but heck no! It was from the sink GRRRR I knew it, when I saw my niece dropping some left over in the sink two weeks ago, I told her in a week or so, the sink would clog. And so I was right, good thing Kuya James repaired it on Sunday and for that we don’t have to wash the dishes in the laundry area. Thank goodness!

The school of Mj is sometimes weird every time they schedule there written exam, they always fall it on Saturday, knowing that Saturday supposedly will spend at home, I thought to complain against the way they schedule it one day when I attended the PTA meeting but I don’t know what happen to me, no one came out from my mouth, and my hand was shaken when I attempted to raise it. Sometimes I rather be quiet than to complain, I know it’s not good, we are the parents and we pay the tuition fee every month so whatever we suggest the management should listen. So parents don’t you just sit in the corner all right? Voice out what’s on your mind, don’t follow what I did, now even though it is against my will but because I did not complaint, I have to follow the schedule has given to us.

And speaking of the tuition fee, yup I paid for it, using the money from blogging, though it is really slow right now, I am still thankful that I was able to pay the school from it. I wish it would be better in a month or so and I hope the school will not have a tuition free increase.

Go To Sleep Mom

Faith woke up just when DJTammy of Anything Under The Sun buzzed me in YM. Faith has always been in the right time, she pooed just when I chat with Terry or wanted me to play with her just when I open my computer.

So tonight I have to bring her to the computer while chatting with Tammy online until she looks so droopy already. I don’t have any choice though I was having fun talking to a new friend I’ve met here in blogosphere, I have to prepare her milk so I could put her to sleep.

And you know what? She did not sleep, she was just there in the crib playing. I already swing her around or sang with her and yes she would close her eyes but the moment I put her down she will open her eyes again and would try to make a peek a boo. It was hopeless to put her to sleep while she’s still so active so I lay down in our bed and put her beside me, I gave her the feeding bottle and I fell asleep!

When I open my eyes just an hour ago, I saw her sleeping so sound beside me and because I have left my computer open before I went to our bedroom, I have to get up and finish what I was doing awhile back.

What happen earlier was like you sleep now Mom and I will too. Phew! Smarty kulit baby.
